Dr. Bob's Record Attempt
|Heading out of Tucumcari on US 54 (and following the RAAM 89 route for most of the trip), Bob rode strongly, without a hint of fatigue. While Bob is now 50, he still rides like he did 15 years ago...fast. Rt 54 is an excellent route for cycling, with a wide shoulder both in NM and TX. The small towns of Logan and Nara Visa were all that separated Bob from Texas and the enormous cattle feedyards near Dalhart (where's Digiscents when you need them?).
